The long forgotten part of our facial anatomy re-emerges. With lips once again naked and exposed, and your old lip color having seen better days/years, here is a tried and true method for getting the right lip color.
Let the color pick you.
- Before putting any color on your lips, put colors you are attracted to on your fingertips.
- Next hold your finger over your lips while looking into a mirror.
- You will have an instant visceral response to whether this color likes you or not.
- Hold your colored fingertips over the clothing you are wearing.
- See if they like each other.
- Some colors make other colors look more vibrant, and some just seem off.
- Trust your visceral judgment and go with what makes you smile.
Now we get to see each other smile again.
